Vital Spot
Buffalo Soldier
Bob Marley & The Wailers
Album: Confrontation

Buffalo soldier, dreadlock Rasta.
There was a buffalo soldier in the heart of America.
Stolen from Africa, brought to America.
Fighting on arrival, fighting for survival.

I mean it.
When I analyze the stench
to me it makes a lot of sense
how the dreadlock Rasta was the buffalo soldier.

And he was taken from Africa, brought to America.
Fighting on arrival, fighting for survival.

Said he was a buffalo soldier, dreadlock Rasta.
Buffalo soldier in the heart of America.

If you know your history
then you would know where you coming from.
Then you wouldn't have to ask me
who the heck do I think I am.

I'm just a buffalo soldier in the heart of America.
Stolen from Africa, brought to America.
Said he was fighting on arrival, fighting for survival.
Said he was a buffalo soldier in the war for America.

Buffalo soldier trodding through the land, oh!
Said ???
Trodding through the land, yeah.

Said he was a buffalo soldier win the war for America.
Buffalo soldier, dreadlock Rasta.
Fighting on arrival, fighting for survival.
Driven from the mainland to the heart of the Caribbean.

Trodding through San Juan in the arms of America.
Trodding through Jamaica, a buffalo soldier.
Fighting on arrival, fighting for survival.
Buffalo soldier, dreadlock Rasta.
